IUI #3

Sunday night...ahh, how does it always come so fast!?! The majority of my weekend was filled with all things baby making. Friday after work I headed to acupuncture, then IUI Saturday, IUI Sunday, and then more acupuncture Sunday! The nurse called on Friday afternoon, and before I could even ask told me to come in both days. Hubby's numbers were great, 86 million with 84% motile...and then 36 million, 97% motile. You would think with over 100 million of hubby's guys floating around inside of me we could get this baby made already!! I'm thinking MAYBE I ovulated this am, as I had some pinching pain on my left side (the one with two follies). So overall I'm very happy with the timing, my follies, and the double IUIs this cycle.

So now as I enter the tww, I'm going to try super super hard to just stay positive. I'm talking almost to the point of just assuming I'm pregnant. I'm over the whole if I get my hopes up and assume I'm preggers, I'll jinx it and definitely won't be kind of mentality. Or if I want it too badly, it will just never happen. Let's face it, everyone who is trying to have a baby gets their hopes up and wants to be pregnant at the end of these two weeks, and lots of those people really do get pregnant. So why not get my hopes up, why not just assume the best possible outcome is in store for me, why not think this could really be my month. I'm kinda thinking I'm due here. And who am I kidding, I really really want this!!

Good luck on your 2WW! Two follicles is great odds, especially with b2b IUI's. I hope this month is it for you!

Yay! Those are great numbers. I don't know much about IUI and timing, but the timing seems great as well! Hoping this is your month!

Great numbers and great timing! I hope that IUI#3 is a charm. Fingers crossed!!!

Jin said...

Good luck to you! This is my 3rd month on clomid as well (first 2 months on 150 mg), though it's a natural cycle - we cancelled IUI#2 to wait for some blood work results and we're glad we did it. Fingers crossed for you!

Good luck on this TWW! So, I'm one of those people who couldn't stand the writing in the Twilight series, yet am still obsessed and read all the books anyway. Team Edward all the way. heehee.
